Kenya Flood Leads to 32 Casualties

12.04.2013

Rain season in Kenya is extremely intensive this year. Extreme weather conditions havre already led to evacuation of 18 thousand residents and 32 casualties. Meteorologists wouldn't give a hopeful forecast either: in over a week it will rain and rain and rain... Schools, hospitals and other social objects are now under water, along with ten thousand hectares of crop fields.

Refugees lack food, medicine and safe water due to transportation problems

Several bridges and roads are also flooded, so national transportation appears to be very poor. A lot of refugees lack food, medicine and safe water. Kenya's rescuers do the best they can, but, apparently, authorities might seek international help.
